Throughout the design process of the Library’s renovation and expansion, a lot of attention has been paid to the interior spaces. Over the past year, the Village of Antioch has previewed some beautification projects planned for the downtown area. In the original plans for the Library remodel there were only small landscaping modifications made for the stretch of the Library building facing Main Street. The monies for completing a grassy lawn, a small path and the insertion of electric is secure. However, the Library Board and Renovation & Expansion Committee saw an opportunity to expand on this area with a little help from the community. A new plan was drafted to create a brick pathway and add lighting, benches and a host of vibrant new plantings. This will provide an additional place for people to sit and gather or for the Library to host programs. Best of all, it will blend with the Main Street beautification project and expand the green spaces in our community.
